- In the heavy-fermion superconductor Ce1-xYbxCoIn5, Yb doping was reported to cause a possible change from nodal d-wave superconductivity to a fully gapped d-wave molecular superfluid of composite pairs near x ≈ 0.07 (nominal value xnom = 0.2). Here we present systematic thermal conductivity measurements on Ce1-xYbxCoIn5 (x = 0.013, 0.084, and 0.163) single crystals. The observed finite residual linear term κ0/T is insensitive to Yb doping, verifying the universal heat conduction of the nodal d-wave superconducting gap in Ce1-xYbxCoIn5. Similar universal heat conduction is also observed in the CeCo(In1–yCdy)5 system. Furthermore, these results reveal a robust nodal d-wave gap in CeCoIn5 upon Yb or Cd doping.
